Dragons and Stuff, is a throwback to my first ever book, Space and Stuff, its basically the same concept only with the craziness happening in a medieval fantasy setting instead of a futuristic sci-fi setting. There has been a lot of comparisons of it to Game of Thrones, I can’t see that myself apart from them both having Dragons in them I can’t see any other similarities but it’s nice to be uttered in the same breath as such things. Personally, I would say it has more in common with Monty Pythons Holy Grail. Its based on the medieval world I created in Goblin Queen, it’s basically an extension of that world of medieval Dragon worlds mixing with Fairy tale worlds, in a sort of Shrek took some drugs and let everyone at Pixar down massively sort of style.

Picking up this book, I knew it was going to be a satirical read...however, I was NOT prepared to laugh as much as I did!! Reading this book reminded of the good 'ol times that I played D&D and the DM would pull a bonehead move and we'd have to compensate (usually over the top) to recover from the blunders we found ourselves in!! I was thoroughly entertained from beginning to end. The story wasn't dull in any way, nor did it drag! It was action-packed, suspenseful at times and just down right HILARIOUS!! And as the description says, you really SHOULD care about what happens in the story. I did and I didn't regret it once!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Prepare to laugh. No, really.

Let me first say that if you have no sense of humor you will not like this book. If you are uncomfortable with making fun of sacrosanct stories like Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones...don't bother. However, for almost anyone else this is a fun read.

I have never read a Simon Carr book, so had no idea what to expect. I liked the cover and also Mr. Carr's use of the phrase 'epic dobadoobries' in the blurb about the book so I had no choice but to read it. If I were asked to describe the book I would say it is a cross between Alice In Wonderland, the 1968 film Barbarella, and a parody of bits and pieces of Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones. Oh, and throw in some pop culture.

Honestly, the plot is not particularly relevant. It's all about the journey. By the way, Mr. Carr has also written such greats as Sheeple', Our Fathers Who Art in Lapland, and A Zombie bit Myffanie. I plan on reading them all.
